The future parking options of Bega’s CBD will substantially increase when work begins early next year on a carpark facility on the former Plumb Motors site in Auckland Street.
“The site was expressly purchased by Council in 2016 to increase the CBD’s parking needs,” Council’s Manager of Property and Project Services, Daniel Djikic said.
“Council has now secured grant funding through the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program for this project to proceed to the construction phase.
“The new carpark will provide 51 car spaces, including four accessible spaces; the majority of which will be serviced by a footpath.
“A revegetation plan for the central path and the western boundary will involve the planting of nine semi-established trees and some native shrub vegetation.
“Another benefit of the new carpark is that it can be used for overflow parking for large sporting events at the sportsground next door.
“Council is now seeking tenders from suitably qualified and experienced contractors to develop the carpark facility.”
